What are you using? What's good?
These used individually with tweed amps. I never use more than one boost pedal at a time. Tweed amps break up easily enough without too much prompting:

Boss BD-2 Blues Driver, Boss SD-1 Super Overdrive, Boss MT-2 Metal Zone, Carvin VLD1 Legacy Drive, Keeley Tone Station, Keeley Fuzz Head, TC Electronic VPD-1 Vintage Pre-Drive, TC Electronic Spark Booster (regular size not mini), Boss GE-7 Equalizer (used as a boost pedal), DOD Overdrive Preamp 250, Boss DS-1 Distortion

It's a great OD pedal on it's on but it's real deal is being a "foundation" pedal that kicks into Tweed territory. Plus I like it's tone stack. It's always great to have Treble, Middle and Bass controls.

Off-label use of an old Lone Wolf Harp Attack. It doesn't have the drive to get into the exploding tweed territory. But it has the round warm mid forward and a great range of eq/tone knob. Imo it's much better than a BD2. Stack a JDM Vindicator for the exploding tweed a'la NY/Crazy Horse.

BJFE Honey Bee (or the Bearfoot version) is a good one. Although its inspired by a Supro amp, those old Supro’s share a lot of DNA with tweed amps.

The Red Llama wasnt designed to emulate a tweed amp as far as I’m aware but definitely has some tweed like break up. It’s also a great pedal into tweed amps.

I’m interested in the Dan Drive Tweedy and Reeves Electric Leo but they are both pretty expensive ad made in small batches.
